    This one goes out to all the origin seekers. Who knew something like this existed? How many other obscure mid-tier makers were there for every prime-time player?

    I highlighted some pieces I've seen over the years which usually are attributed to Bohemian makers. I did it myself with this one http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/80350-threaded-cookie-pot .

      This is a great piece of documentation!We never should be too certain trying to ID our glass.I've already found on these pages models that I'd be sure they're Polish! The butterfly dish in pic.4 ,one of the jars in pic.2.
      My grandma came from Riga and now I know the origins of our tea box :-)

      Addendum :J.Jaksch was a trade company not a producer so they could sell Bohemian products and Polish as well.Now the list of items in pics is clear to me.
      If you're interested in the firm this is the link.Unfortunately text is in Russian but Google translator...

      Thank You for comments, love and the link Ivonne!

      I read the article and it tells, that they had some kind of workshops, that they painted the porcelain and engraved the glass. Yeah it seems they did the finishing work with that kind of items. The other page of catalog said they produced the "alfinware" something like silverware from Cu/Ni alloy. It also mentions the training for workers usually took 6 years, so I don't know what to think.

      The catalog mentions only the same sources for the ware the article does Royal Copenhagen (Holmegaard), Meissen, Galle. very interesting, 90% of contents is glass, but they don't mention the origin and also don't say they made it, so it's safer to think they didn't.
